The arrival of spring is a wonderful time to add and update your fragrance for the season.
The fragrances we select for ourselves are an expression of self, mood setting, season representative, and leave an impression upon those whom we meet. Matching fragrance to our personalities, times of year, mood and sense of style is a way to select a signature scent that is so quintessentially “us” in every way possible. Ideally we are selecting something that will leave people that meet us remembering us each time they experience that scent you wore and instantly think of you. When selecting your fragrance, remember that the top notes are the ones that you smell first. After that has worn off, the scent of the heart notes appear. What lingers, are the base notes.
What better time than the time of year when flowers are blooming, and the air fills with the freshness of new beginnings. The right fragrance is an ideal way to refresh your look with that invisible element that finishes off the perfect outfit. Here are a few suggestions from our editor to consider in your search for a new scent for spring. The edit is fresh, feminine and fragrant,
